Sukrano Memorial Monument

Larkano is well connected with all taluka headquarters and important towns of its own district, the neighbouring districts, and the neighbouring provinces, through a network of metalled roads and railways.  Following are some of the most important regional road links:

  • Indus Highway links Larkana with Jacobabad, Shikarpur, and Sukkur in the North East and with Dadu and Hyderabad in the South.  This road meets the junction of Super Highway and National Highway at Jamshoro.
  • Miro Khan Road connects Larkano with Miro Khan (total length of about 28 km)
  • Moenjodaro Road is a 24 km long connection between Larkano and the important archaeological site of Moenjodaro.  The same road provides access to the airport located in the vicinity.
  • Naudero Road is 18 km long and connects Larkano with Naudero town.

The Karachi-Quetta main railway line crosses the district on a North-South direction and connects Larkano with Sukkur and Quetta.  The same line links Larkano with Badeh, Dokri, Moenjodaro, Naudero, Dadu, Sehwan, Kotri, and Karachi.  Another line branches from Larkano and enters Jacobabad District via Shahdadkot and Qambar.

Moenjodaro airport operates regular flights from Karachi and Sukkur.  Onward connections from these two cities link Larkano with all international airports in Pakistan.  Finally, a ferry service is available in the Indus River.  This service is basically used for the transport of goods to the neighbouring districts.
